Much Ado About Mesh!

Much Ado About Mesh!

Mesh went gridwide on August 23rd, 2011. Today I finally picked up a Mesh dress that caught my eye and I do have to say, it’s quite sensational. I did not photoshop this dress at all, I wanted to show you what it looked like as I posed in different ways.

Now I am going to share a few things about Mesh:

Viewers that currently support Mesh:
These are the viewers that currently support Mesh that I am aware of. I am going to share what happened when I tried to use them. You can see my computer specs on this page.

  • SL Viewer 3.0 – It crashed on me instantly as soon as I logged in, even with an ALT that has less than 5K inventory. At times the display driver crashes as soon as I start it up. Please vote for this jira if you have a Nvidia GTX 400 series.
  • Kirstens Viewer S21 Build 9 – This viewer worked pretty well for me, and this is the one I used to take these images.
  • Firestorm – As of September 6th it supports Mesh.
  • Astra Viewer – For those used to viewer 1 – I have not confirmed myself if this actually works since I do not use V1.
  • Cool VL Viewer – Another V1 with mesh – I have not tried it.

Mesh in the News:
The grid has been buzzing about Mesh the past week. Here are some links to blog posts and such with more information.

  1. Hi, Strawberry, thanks for the link to my blog :)

    Just thought I’d point out, the Astra Viewer 1.1.0 at astraviewer.org *does not* support mesh rendering at this point.

    It’s the 1.5.10.(2) version. This is available from:

    https://github.com/aurora-sim/AstraViewer

    There’s a download link on the page.

  2. Inara, thank you! I’ve updated the link.

  4. Cute look! I’m a viewer two hater so I haven’t tried mesh yet but I know that Haut Monde has added mesh skirts to their designs too if you want to add them to your list.

  5. Vaki Zenovka has written a very provocative and interesting article on how mesh forces us back into a RL mindset about our shapes.

    Fascinatingly enough, the mesh Jira concerning shapes appears to have gone missing. Do you happen to have any idea why?

    A friend was curious about mesh so I went to check on the Jira and see how many votes we were up to, and I’m getting a “Permission Violation” error .

    “Permission Violation

    It seems that you have tried to perform an operation which you are not permitted to perform.

    If you think this message is wrong, please consult your administrators about getting the necessary permissions.”
